ODBDSNT21 My Favorite

The current Stamping in Time challenge at ODBD is to use your favorite embellishment on a project.  Well, if you've visited my blog or my SCS gallery even once before, you already know that my favorite embellishments are flowers followed closely by ribbon.

I used Jen's SFYTT from 10/30/10 as the basis for my layout.  I really liked this sketch and just didn't have time to play with it during the actual week it was revealed.

Here's my card using Scripture Collection 3 from ODBD, a double silk ribbon bow tied with my Bow Easy, and of course, some flowers.  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, and the edges of the sentiment are inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink while the Nestie die was still in place to create the white border.  All of the papers are from Basic Grey's "Bittersweet" collection.  I added a border strip punched with a MS punch, but it is kind of buried in the back.

A few closeups of the flowers!   They are all from Michael's.

I have been so blessed this past week.  Not only was my Rejoice card chosen as a SLC feature card, but it was also picked as one of the weekly favorites in the SCS forum.  When I made that card, I was afraid that I'd done waaaaaaaaay too much embellishing, but I was happy with it when I got it completed.  I was so honored that others also enjoyed that creation.  Another card I made last week, the CAS Merry Christmas card found in this post was picked in the CAS favorites of the week thread on SCS.  It just seemed rather ironic that I was favorited for both an embellished card and a CAS card in the same week!  {giggle}  But wow, I'm so flattered and humbled to be included amongst the other stampers who I've admired for many years. 

Also, thank you to my commenters.  Your comments really do make my day!  I'm going to try to carve out a little bit of time each day for commenting as I don't do that nearly often enough for others.

Thanks for looking and may you be richly blessed!

Edited to add:  I'm so excited that I won this week's gift certificate to ODBD!  Thank you, Kelley!  I can't wait to go shopping.  : D
